..and what's wrong with Milton Keynes?!
Subject: New Town
If you live in the UK and remember Z-Cars thats where i grew up....Kirkby new town just outside Liverpool. Thats where it was filmed and the theme tune was named after one of the local pubs"THE JOHNNY TODD". Everton football club use this as there sort of semi official theme tune i wonder how many of there supporters know the origin of the toffee song.(TESCO DO..LOL).
Anyways i sort have gone off topic sorry.
as for the movie ....yeah dream on

This is a jolly jaunt down memory lane providing a simplistic overview of the rationale behind town planning and the development of social communities ... obviously before Tescos took over.

Fun little overview of what you could do to escape the megapolis with overcrowding and pollution (London perhaps?) create another town! Why, now your problems are solved! Yesiree, nothing like Urbal Sprawl had been invented yet, and this cartoon, along with plenty of Prelinger shorts, would make an excellent program documenting just that.
Put the pubs back, give 'em local shops, churches, post offices etc or you'll get Milton bloody Keynes!
Gives a little insight into the conception of some British towns such as milton keynes.
